If you ever ski Arapahoe Basin in the spring you need a few things along with you.

1- Folding chairs for the parking lot.
2- Grill
3- Cooler
4- Sunscreen.

I'm jealous that people out there are still hitting the slopes and starting to get my head around the fact it will be 80 here on Friday and then 54 and rainy the rest of the weekend.

Sorry- American idiomatic expression- a tailgate party is where you take down the tail of your truck or you open the boot and you have food, beer, etc. Everyone seats on folding chairs. Loud music plays. More often this is done at American Football games but Americans are always looking for an excuse to party so...

At first skiing was ok- a little mushy but that was better than ice. After 2 and 1/2 hours we were sticking and I felt like I was going to pop out of my ski boots. Then I came home and put on a t-shirt and jeans. It's so funny at the end of the season- folks in shorts, hula skirts, bikini tops going down the slopes. Lots of tailgating in the parking lot too.

Rachel, Ski and have a "whoo hoo!!!!" moment for the rest of us.

Boog, I love to shop for ski stuff year round.

I too have been watching the snow reports and thinking... OH MAN! It's been 70 here this week.

Um, I'm REALLY REALLY SORRY but... I'm going skiing tomorrow- please don't hate me! My local doesn't close until tomorrow. I know the snow you are getting- we got it all we then it went east.

Only a couple of lifts are open- the staff all moved on to other jobs for the season. If you leave now you could make it to my house way before tomorrow morning. emoticon

I just bought my daughter some 'Miss Demeanors' K2s. They are awesome. REI had a big sale and they were only around $200. Good luck with your purchase.

I keep checking my (closed for the season) ski area's webiste. 20" in the last 24 hrs. And white out conditions on the webcam (why don't they do me a favor and disconnect it?) ;-P

On the positive side... I think I'm going to go shopping for skis tomorrow.
